      I sometimes try to cal with flush, but I swear almost everytime turn brings another same suit. I wanted to stack the pretty fish (SB), or get re-raised by CO. I dont play this line too often, but If I re-raised on the turn It would be so so so obvious that I made a flush.

      So I'm asking, when to slowplay a turned flush

      Aaah, open limp with 53s is very bad and openlimp/call is even worse (especially OOP). If you want to play it, then open raise to $1 (but I think that it is too loose and SB seems to have high WTSD; it is clear fold to me).

      You can't slowplay turn. Your flush is very vulnerable. You must protect your hand by raising. Raise to $11.

      You may slowplay A-high or K-high flush but I would not slowplay K-high flush. However, with A-high flush, I would raise to get value (maybe little bit less than to $11).

      You could slowplay with Q 9 or with 9 7

      Don´t limp/call 53s
      Fold pf or raise that hand
      Raise turn and go broke, since one of the reasons why you play 53s is hit flush.
      Folding river is fine, but call is also fine, since he could easily have there set/two pair which he turned into bluff.
